This week I welcome to Your Partner In Success Radio Janet R. Carpman, Ph.D., and author of Directional Sense: How to Find Your Way Around.
If you are as directionally impaired as I am, there actually is help! And when I say that I am directionally impaired, I mean it so bad that my dentist leads me back through the labyrinth (as I see it) of his building back to the receptionist desk because they know that I will wander around helplessly until somebody takes pity on me!
Jan Carpman has been thinking about wayfinding ever since she became lost on a Jersey Shore boardwalk as a wandering 3-year-old. Many years later, while directing a unique applied research project at the University of Michigan Medical Center, she found that disorientation accounted for a significant amount of stress experienced by hospital patients and visitors. As I told her during the pre-interview, not even my onboard nav system in my vehicle is of any real assistance because I invariably pick a fight with the voice that is telling me to "turn left here", because she is not the boss of me. But that is a whole 'nother topic.
Jan holds a PhD in Architecture and Sociology (University of Michigan), a Master of City Planning (Harvard University), and a BA in Sociology (University of Rochester) and is a skilled speaker, writer, and coach. She is going to tell us why she wrote this book and share some very important tips and tricks to help us to learn how to navigate.
Jan and her partner are authors of a new book called "Directional Sense: How to Find Your Way Around," a friendly guide for directionally challenged people: those who admit not being able to find their way without a trail of breadcrumbs.
Directional challenges occur in every age group, boomers included. Seeking personal growth, some boomers may choose this phase of life to learn or refresh important life skills – like good directional sense - that have previously escaped them. When people retire, they may travel more and good “way finding” skills can help make travel more pleasant and less stressful.
When women are on their own, as a result of divorce or widowhood, they may need to take on the skills they formerly left to their husbands. Personal navigation may be a new adventure for them. Navigation is one aspect of the ubiquitous available technology, from smart phones to GPS.
Sharpening your directional skills will help you use this technology to your advantage (keeping up with your kids and grandkids) and know how to cope when it doesn’t work.

I never left the ministry the focus was changed.
